Summary of Sports

Sports are an effective avenue for WorldVenture missionaries to bring the Gospel to where people are. Providing recreational outlets gathers children and young people while providing opportunities to build friendships. Through sharing a common interest, the missionaries and short-term teams make disciples for Christ and train national leaders to reach their own people.

Summary of Church Outreach

The picture of the early church in Acts models what we’d like our churches to emulate. When believers gather to learn and worship—helping each other in times of need—the Gospel becomes the central part of community. When we do church outreach, it includes making Christ known and growing in faith. This encompasses anything from evangelism and Bible translation, to leadership training and campus ministry.
